Prep/Cooking Time: 25 + 40 min | Medium | 6 Servings


Pie crust

• 180 ml (85 g) almond flour

• 60 ml (35 g) sesame seeds

• 60 ml (25 g) coconut flour

• 1 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder

• 1 tsp baking powder

• 1 pinch salt

• 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

• 2 eggs

• 60 ml water


• 1 red chili pepper, finely chopped

• 2 (400 g) avocados, diced

• 240 ml mayonnaise

• 6 eggs

• 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped

• ½ tsp onion powder

• ½ tsp salt

• ½ tsp ground black pepper

• 170 g cream cheese

• 240 ml (110 g) gouda cheese, shredded

For serving

• 85 g (350 ml) leafy greens (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix all the ingredients for the pie dough in a food processor for a few minutes until the dough forms a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, just knead the ingredients together in a bowl using either a fork or your hands.

2. Attach a piece of parchment paper to a springform pan, no larger than 12″ (26 cm) diameter. The springform pan makes it easier to remove the pie when it’s done. Grease the pan and the paper.

3. Spread dough into the pan. Use an oiled spatula or your fingers. Pre-bake the crust for 10–15 minutes.

4. Remove the seeds from the chili and chop finely. Place the avocado and the chili in a bowl and mix with the other ingredients.

5. Pour mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 35 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and serve with a green salad.
